RSS feed not validating
« on: May 29, 2018, 06:03:52 pm »
My RSS feed has been fine until recently it will no longer validate. I get this error:

is invalid XML, likely due to invalid characters. XML error: Not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1, column 1

referring to:
87<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

How do I fix this?

Thank you!

Please post a link to the podcast RSS feed you need help so we can take a closer look.

Something is injecting the text "87" (without the quote marks) at the very top of your podcast feed and that's causing the feed to break. These types of problems are often caused by poorly developed themes or plugins outside of PowerPress. More information on how to diagnose a problem like this can be found here:
